quiet Thai island good for snorkelling and sunsets?

Posted by dangerzone15 on 24/2/2015 at 22:39

Anyone have particular recommendations here? Looking for a good island for snorkelling. Quiet but not so quiet that I won't meet people (as a solo traveller its important to meet people). Preferably on the gulf side as I have visited phi phi, phuket, so nang and raileh alreafy. I enjoy a beautiful sunset so any islands that stand out in this regard would be a bonus. Thanks for any advice. ...

Getting to Lipe - use Trang or Hat Yai

Posted by tigershoot on 24/2/2015 at 13:10

I am looking at getting to Lipe or Bulon Lae in May. Why is it that most seem to recommend going to Hat Yai and across to Pak Bara when it seems closer and quicker to get there from Trang? I would be coming down from Bangkok - probably by train. I know Trang well as I went there last year and it seems the logical route - hence the reason I ask why Hat Yai is always mentioned. ...

Quite a few changes, new route.

Posted by BuzzmFrog84 on 14/2/2015 at 13:51

I'm going to be spending my first 3-4 nights in Bangkok. The only other destinations I have in mind right now are Ayutthaya, Sukhothai, Chiang Mai (I'm hearing mixed reviews for the time I'll be here, April-May, but I at least want to check it out) and some sort of beach/island destination after that. I've cut most of the Isan plans out of my trip. Not that I don't want to see them, but the more time I put into research and the closer I come to the date, the more I think this is practical for ...

Hi! So I have 16 days to try to get in enough, but not too much. Those counting the days that I arrive and leave. I arrive at 2pm, so most of that day is gone. But I leave well after midnight on the last day. 3am to be exact. So I have that whole day as long as I'm within access to the airport by the evening. I'm not planning on doing anything uncommon as it's my first time there. So just sticking to the well followed paths as boring as that may be. Two places I am going is Phi Phi and ...

A very quiet Thai island?

Posted by quaton on 11/1/2015 at 21:57

Hi all, Hope all you backpackers out there can help.......I'm hoping to find and "retreat" for 10 days to any island in Thailand that is traditionally simplistic and quiet. In other words, no or minimal tv, internet, simple bungalows with simple restaurant which is family run. Very simple, very basic with time to reflect. Cheers, Phil Perth - Western Australia ...

Thai Etiquette.

Posted by BuzzmFrog84 on 10/2/2015 at 21:32

I should have started looking at this much earlier. I've been looking at several different guides...blogs, youtube posts get an idea on greetings and such. I'm starting to get the basics of the wai greeting but I'd hate to offend someone and give the wrong one. I've also seen that you should bow and in some cases walk on your knees when it comes to passing the elderly. Now, I don't expect a walk-through on all of the etiquette I should know but any links or info would be incredibly ap ...
